With the recently adopted EU waste package, Member States must assume important new obligations. These include ensuring that by 1 January 2025 separate collection schemes are set up for textile waste produced by households. The new obligations have to be transposed in the national legislation within a 2-year period.

So far in the EU there is rather limited experience with separate collection of textiles as only 15 - 20 % is separately collected, while the vast majority ends being landfilled or incinerated. Furthermore, there are large differences among the different Member States in terms of how they manage this waste stream and the performances they have.

The upcoming EPR Club lunch debate, hosted by ACR+, will discuss the current situation and explore potential solutions, with a particular focus on the role of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) as a key instrument to help implement the requirement of separate collection of textiles in the new EU waste legislation.

The debate will take place on 04 October 2018 (12:00 – 14:00) at ACR+ offices. The programme will be soon available here. To register, please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

The event is open exclusively to EPR Club members. ACR+ members, being associated members of EPR Club, can participate in EPR Club events and access all online materials.
